e230 auto help

hi all, my e230 auto will not change up the gears, but goes right through the rev range, so i guess its not limp mode?, the strange thing is this, my car got hit on the drivers side and the very same day this problem started, could there be a link here or not? i.e is there anything that could have caused it due to the hit?
but saying that, i had noticed previous to this there was a slight slipping in low gears, does low atf fluid cause slipping or not, what could be causing the gearbox not to change up, any help would be great, thanks, the car is a e230 auto 1234D gearbox

Assuming its a 97 to ~04 model with the 722.6 trans?

Check engine light on? Sounds like the trans is in limp home mode; 1st, 2nd and R only.

If you think it is accident related check the wiring harness on the right front (passenger side) of the trans; could have been knocked loose. Is a round plug in connector.
